Have I got a place to go for you this weekend in the boat. Have you heard of the Gulfshore Grill & The Cottage on Ft. Myers Beach? This is a great time of year to go (Spring Break). If you like to people watch and have a great time you have got to go. Once you have anchored off of Ft. Myers Beach, you can walk up to the beach and get lunch at the Cottage. At The Cottage you can sit out on a deck or inside over looking the beach and Gulf of Mexico and watch all the people, it is really quite amusing. The food at The Cottage is really good an the cold beverages are great too. If you want to dine inside in the air conditioning walk next door to the Gulfshore Grill which also offers amazing views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. The food here is really good as well. After lunch you can go down stairs to the Beach Bar and hang out enjoy a cold beverage and people watch. Or throw a Frisbee or play smash ball or just relax in the refreshing waters of the  Gulf of Mexico. You will have a great time here, everyone is happy and having a great time!!!Oh, do not forget you camera. Enjoy the photos.

How Do You Get There?

How do you get there? This is easy. Starting from the Sanibel Causeway. Head towards Fort Myers Beach VIA the intra coastal waterway. Keep heading down parallel to Ft. Myers Beach. You will see the big Concrete pier, just past the pier, you will see a large green building. Right to the left of the Lani Kai (the green building) you will see The Gulfshore Grill and The Cottage. You cannot miss it.

The Green Flash Resturant

This is great place to go by boat or car.  Although if you love the water as much as My family and friends do, then go by boat of course.

This is a little more formal than say cabbage Key, however, if you have been boating all day it is still perfectly fine to go in and have lunch or dinner. After a day of fishing or at the  beach with the family and friends, you can pull right up to the dock. (They now have two docks for plenty of parking for your vessel.) You can sit outside and enjoy the Florida breeze (if you do sit out side bring a few shrimp from you bait well or some white bait and there are a couple small white Herons that would love a hand out.) or if you are hot go inside to the cool air conditioning. The food is really good hear and the service has always been great for us.

 

How Do You Get There?

This is easy. Coming from Cape Coral Yacht Club, get into the ICW and head towards the mouth of the river. Go through the slow zone, when it says to resume normal speed, go almost straight ahead, you will see a green marker this is the opening of the miserable mile as some people call it. Proceed stahying in the channel, do not go out side the channel or you will run aground, it is very, very shallow outside the channel. Follow the ICW into Pine Island Sound. You will have the back side of Sanibel on your left. Keep following the ICW. When you get to Green Marker 35 make a left towards land approx. one mile you will see a Red head pin marker, should be number “2″ marking the channel going into the channel into the harbor area. (Stay in the channel there are some shallow spots just outside the channel) Follow the markers in. The Green Flash restaurant will be on your right. You will recognize it from the photo attached. Have a great time!!
